DescriptionThe Old Dark House (Universal, R-1939). Folded, Very Fine-. One Sheet (27" X 41").
Boris Karloff headlines an all-star cast, including Raymond Massey and Charles Laughton, in this creepy thriller that set the standard by which every "old dark house" film would be judged. This rare first reissue one sheet from 1939 features superb portraits of the cast, including Karloff as the butler Morgan in makeup by Jack Pierce. The poster has edge and fold wear, slight fold separations, very minor chips, and small tears, in addition to a tear in the right border that extends slightly into the background. Also visible are mild creases, unobtrusive stains, and a small tape stain in the lower left corner.
Estimate: $400 - $800.
